​​​Homestay & Custodianship  Information

 

The Surrey School District does not provide Homestay or Custodian services, but refers students to professional companies for this specialized support.

Homestay: Surrey Schools is committed to ensuring homestay arrangements comply with the BC Human Rights Code and requests or preferences expressed by international students which violate the Code will be rejected by homestay service providers. Surrey Schools recognizes international students come to Canada to improve their English language skills and English must be the primary language spoken in the home of all of the below listed homestay hosts. Note that all companies listed below declare that they meet the BC Ministry of Education's Homestay Guidelines (you can click on the document at bottom of this page). These guidelines clearly support such things as mandatory criminal record checks for adult family members and no more than two international students reside in one homestay. Failure to comply with any of the provincial government's guidelines will result in a student being requested to find a new homestay or the student being asked to leave the program. For international students seeking a host family or for Surrey/White Rock families interested in hosting an international student, please contact these companies directly for policies and pricing.
